    Default Where have all the economists gone?

    Just occurred to me that I have not seen an economist on the box for a while. There was a time when you could not put Vincent Brown on without Constantin or one of the other boys on. I haven't seen them lately so what's happening?

    The real economists ?
    They have not gone away ya know...

    Kilkenomics 2012 | Europe

    In the meantime we get spoofers on Pravda like Burgess, Power, etc...

    Where is Austin Hughes nowadays ?
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    They are all gone on ski holidays to Sun Valley, or on Caribbean cruises with the dosh made from Swiss companies, from books, TV appearances etc warning us how terrible things are going to get and that we need to stop expecting to earn a living wage on account of the bank debt, and even if we cut to the bone our grandchildren will still owe a trillion trillion trillion.....
    ..it's all awful, it'll get worse...
    .....and then there's that elite of untouchables who seem to be still having a great time....it's all wrong...everything the government is doing is wrong......if only the government would listen to them...the Minister for Finance should drop round to their house for advice and a chew of garlic....

    ...when they get back in the Spring, that is...

    The media are bored with economic stuff. Despite all the roaring and yelling about how fecked we were, the country failed to collapse into a low-rent version of Somalia, the banks gradually stopped sucking billions out of the taxpayer, and kicking the can down the road turned out to be a workable strategy despite being incredibly boring. So it's dull, no longer sexy, and the journos can stop having to go to conferences that hurt their heads.
    Never let the best be the enemy of the good.
